What is Mobile Device Management?

Mobile Device Management (MDM) is a software solution that allows IT administrators to manage and secure mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. MDM solutions typically provide a variety of features, with Shepherd being no different:

  • Device enrollment and provisioning
  • Application management
  • Content management
  • Security and compliance management
  • Remote wipe and lock
  • Reporting and analytics

MDM solutions can be used to manage both company-owned and personally-owned devices (BYOD). By using an MDM solution, IT administrators can ensure that mobile devices are properly configured and secured, and that company data is protected.

The secret to Mobile Device Management

Control your whole fleet of devices

MDM provides visibility into managed devices, allowing IT admins to configure, secure, and wipe data remotely.

Improved data and device security

MDM safeguards mobile devices, restricts apps and device use, enforces strong passwords, and encrypts sensitive data.

Reduced costs

MDM saves money for organisations with bring your own devices & choose your own device policies by providing secure device management and freeing up resources.

Do I need an MDM if I have an RMM?

Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) tools are not as effective at managing and securing Apple devices, leading to a lack of control and security management. Most RMMs only allow inventory tracking and remote control, neglecting crucial tasks like patching, enforcing security policies, and protecting against cyber threats.

Using HardSoft’s Shepherd MDM solution alongside an RMM tool for Windows devices ensures standardisation and efficient management of all devices on your network.
